Review

It's 01/2010, my car has 83,000 miles on it and it performs / rides like new. Drove from Houston to Florida straight through at 80-100 mph and still got 25.5 mpg average for the trip...hard to beat! Repairs can get costly, but the performance is worth it! (Get a warranty if you can) I'd recommend this car to any car enthusiast!


Best Features

Ride, Handling, Explosive Power, Pure Comfort


Worst Features

None,...Well Done!

Review

While under the generous 4 year 50K mile warranty I had lots of problems including driver's side mirror falling off due to cheap metal. The rear door regulator, transmission leak, cup holder, power headrests (twice) motor, lug nuts rusted away, and battery. But since the warranty was over it has only been an H20 sensor and the Teleaid antenna broke off. The styling is timeless and the ride feels like in an electric car. The motor is smooth along with the ride. There are no child locks for the rear doors though. Uses synthetic oil that needs to be changed every 10,000 miles. It gets better the longer I seem to go. Expect about 18 city and 28 highway


Best Features

Ride, fuel mileage, styling, interval between oil changes, weather band on the radio, comfortable for very tall drivers, built in first aid kit, car computer is helpful. Owners manual is a hardback book, very bright lights and these are not xenon.


Worst Features

Better headrests motors. Annoying steering wheel sqeaking since new.

Review

Wonderful 5.5L motor that'll fun forever. Problem with this car is build quality and electronic failures. Also watch out for rust. MB USA will not acknowledge serious rust issues their cars even though hundreds of thousands of well maintained MB cars are rusting. Easy to drive, if you don't step on the gas it drives just like a regular E-class. Great commuter. Much more comfortable than BMW M5. Depreciation very poor, same year M5 costs $10-12k more.


Best Features

Engine, timeless design, excellent seats


Worst Features

Fix the rust issues. Better navigation.
